It's a dirty job but someone has to do it. Good thing The Blindnamic Duo are back and ready to get serious!

 

This week, Marc and Jan are getting into the nitty gritty of finding a job when you're disabled. sharing some personal experiences, the two also cover why certain solutions don't always work and how things tie into social assistance. At the end of the day there ain't no party like a blind job party so get ready for an in depth discussion about employment. Disabled workplaces represent, yo!

 

All kidding aside, we get a bit more serious than usual but still maintain the charm you've come to know and love. How did Marc over think himself out of a job not once but twice? What would he do to gain an advantage over Jan in an interview? Why is she obsessed with car metaphors and what makes our podcast absolute rubbish? There's only one way to find out!

The Blindnamic Duo are celebrating their 25th episode in style and it's... educational?

 

Covering how Marc got into college, he and Jan lay out how The Blind Avenger earned his degree at the school of hard knocks. Why did the former head of journalism refuse to talk with the beacon of blindness? How did the future journalist still slide into the program? What extra obstacles did he face due to his disability and why couldn't his skills speak for themselves? 

 

If you take anything away from this podisode it should probably be "don't piss Marc off!" In addition to these questions, we allude to future hurdles he didn't see coming (no pun intended,) discuss an amazing Christmas lights show in the area and Jan starts singing... again. (Oh the humanity!)

Stop the presses, The Blindnamic Duo are back to break a story that will change things forever!

 

Okay so maybe there's a bit of fake news in there, but we are definitely back with some audio fun for your earholes. Join Marc and Jan as they get into the former's career as a journalist while being blind. Why did he choose this field? How has Jan helped along the way and what payment has she received? Also, what opportunities has Marc missed out on due to his disability?

 

We cover lots of ground, serious and silly, on this week's podisode. From not knowing he sat side by side with Jan for weeks in college to her (awful) sound effects for winking, this one has plenty of late breaking news! Don't be a dingleberry, subscribe, download and get ready for us to talk all about Marc's accessible technology next time too.
